the area of its circular base by its height.

pi x square of the radius x height

cylinder

This cylinder has a height of 15 cm and a diameter of 8 cm.

Its radius equals 4 cm.

Area = 3.14 x 4 x 4

= 50.24 x 15cm =

To find this cylinder's volume, multiply the area of the circle by the

height.

50.24 x 15 =753.6
